For some time past the drags and omnibuses have run the Tramway Company a hard race for patronage on the Christchurch streets. The close competition had the effect of reducing tram fares and 'bus fares to merely nominal figures. The drag and "bus proprietors have been the first to show •ignals of distress, and a few days ago a deputation of their number waited upon the Tramway Company's Manager with a view to an agreement to raise the fares. The' Manager, however, refused to change the figures, so that the public of Christchurch will still enjoy their cheap street travelling. At the rehearsal of " Patience" last evening by the local company of amatuers there was a very good attendance of both male and female voices. The solo parts are now all filled, and close attention is being paid to these by the ladies and gentlemen in the cast, while the chorus is undergoing hard drill under Mr J. H. Brooks, the conductor. The tenors have been recruited by one or two fresh voices, among whom we are pleased to notice that of Mr E. Higgins, who has returned to town after an absence of three months, and will be a great acquisition to the chorus.
